With the proliferation of automobile industry, vehicles are augmented with various forms of increasingly powerful computation, communication, storage and sensing resources. A vehicle therefore can be regarded as 'computer-on-wheels'. With such rich resources, it is of great significance to efficiently utilize these resources. This puts forward the vision of vehicular cloud computing. In this paper, we provide an extensive survey of current vehicular cloud computing research and highlight several key issues of vehicular cloud such as architecture, inherent features, service taxonomy and potential applications.
